Royal London pension customers can now access a range of sustainable funds managed by Royal London Asset Management at no extra cost through their workplace and individual pension plans.
Managed by Royal London Asset Management, there are five funds offering a choice of options across the risk-return spectrum, from 100% fixed income to 100% equities, allowing customers to invest their pension in these funds individually or as part of a portfolio.
The funds have £1.7bn in assets under management, and will be managed by Royal London Asset Management’s sustainable team who have over 25 years’ experience in running sustainable funds. Over the past five years, the funds have delivered annualised returns of between 4% and 12%.
